Initial farm yard smells, moss, fermenting fruits and a touch of sweet caramel.
Cloudy lemonade, red apple skins, crisp & very fresh.
Hot apple strudel, long lingering finish with a lasting taste of hops and barley.
Nose – Much more like it, a deeper feel already, with sour fruit top notes, furniture polish – rose water spilled on a polished table (or maybe Turkish delight). A touch of leather with water.
Body – Ripe and perfumed, but with excellent fizzing wood contrast to the pink rose character. Softly sweet. Drier with water, even more balance.
Finish – Long and overripe again, tea tannins balance perfectly at the end, bringing you back for the next sip.
An extremely well judged whisky. Great structure, that lovely rose character and good fruit, perfume and wood balance.
